Great place to snorkel and scuba diveing. Saw an Spoted Eagle Ray and many beautiful and colorful fish. We left from John Pennekamp State Park.

This was one of two destinations of a three hour dive tour on the Visibility out of John Pennekamp on the Visibility(see separate review). Captain Dan moored us ten feet from the Christ statute.

Very special place indeed. Besides the statue the reef is amazing! Well worth the travel. I saw divers there and snorkelers there with families.

A very nice reef but very crowded because all of the boats that you can go out for the day on go there....stay on the opposite side of the reef, away from the statue...that way you will see all type of fish, soft and hard corals, and it isn't busy.

Great dive spot as in all of Key Largo. There is an area where it is shallow enough to take SCUBA Rangers with the proper dive master.

Water conditions and clarity were not the best, but I did always want to see the Christ statue of the Abyss. This was our second stop of the day, with a nicer reef than the farther north rocks.

I was actually impressed by the reef, though the actual variety of fish that we saw there was a little disappointing.
